Horsefly, Atylotus rusticus by stuart

Male Atylotus rusticus in the net, Pevensey Levels, 28 June 2006. This is an incredibly rare species in the UK with probably no more than a dozen records prior to 2006. On the Dipterists Forum field meeting in Sussex in 2006, we were lucky enough to hit upon a a large scale emergence in progress and many tens of individuals were seen and photographed!
